Highly aesthetic retaining solution for Sekisui House
28 April 2017
Sekisui House have a reputation for high quality and aesthetically pleasing solutions in everything they do. On this occasion Sekisui are developing greenfield land for individual sale as well as offering end to end house and land packages. The blocks are built on rolling topographic conditions so it was necessary to level the ground in between individual lots. This typically varies from 500mm – 1200mm.
ModularWalls considered the aesthetic requirements as well as the imposed surcharge loadings from soil and close boundary proximity housing. The TerraFirm retaining panel was selected as the best solution by Sekisui in consultation with its design engineers. TerraFirm was chosen not only due to its strength relative to other traditional concrete or timber sleeper solutions, but also due to its enhanced aesthetic appeal. With a requirement for traditional timber fencing to be attached to the top of the retaining wall at a later date, ModularWalls designed the structural support beam with a universal fence connector.
